Somethings just make me grouchy!

Somethings just make me grouchy and wanting to punch people in the kneecaps and today it just happens to be hairstylists-except for my darling cousin Summer! This is what I think-you go to your hair lady/man and say hey here is what I want whither it be a different color or a new cut and then you completely surrender to them. Some person with scissors and chemicals to do whatever they want despite your opinion and you just hope that they heard what you said. I wonder if they realize the power that they have to transform you into a beauty queen super hotty or and ugliness with bad hair. And so yes there is a story to go along with my grouchiness. I went to my hair lady the other day-the lady I have been going to for eight years. And I have gotten to the point of almost complete trust to the point where I will tell her what I think and then will say "but whatever you think, I trust you". And so we had a similar conversation this last week as I sat in her beauti/uglifier chair and I told her I just needed a little trim and reshaping since my hair was starting to look like a grown out mane rather than a hip hot momma hair cut. She ran her hands through it briefly and washed it and then we were back in the chair and she started to work her magic? Now let me just say I have had my fair share of bad haircuts and whenever I am in "the chair" there is a bit of anxiety as I fear that this might be one of those bad hair cut moments again. And so I sat there with my bit of anxiety but anticipation that I would walk out a hot mamma again. So the snipping began and my hair began to fall on my lap and I felt the anxiety increase as saw how much hair was being cut, did I really have that much lenght to cut off? I watched as she just kept snipping and then it was done. She asked me to run my hands through it and make sure it felt okay and as I did I wanted to say "no it doesn't feel okay I have no hair". I walked out in sorrow knowing for the next few weeks I would have to look like a boy with big boosoms but I will bare it well knowing at least I have nice earlobes and awfully great eyelashes!

Cali,

I've never seen you with a bad haircut! It's only fair, I suppose.....

Hey, thanks for the very very very cute earrings you (and Casey!?) sent for my birthday. They were perfect. You have such great taste in everything. So not only should you be make-up artiste to the stars, but also fashion dresser and fabulous interior decorator. When you got it, you got it and you got it!

Do you know who Twitch is? Joshua, Katee, Chelsea Hightower???? I"m an addict.

So... I could offer a great deal more sympathy if you'd included a snapshot of this horrific haircut. Asd it stands, I close my eyes and see cute Cali and it's hard to muster up any tears.

But... I will take you at your word, and hope your locks grow out fast. If not, I have a couple of super "hot mama" ball caps I could send up to you.

I used to model for hairstylists.. the guys with the really small scissors and the really HUGE egos. Let me just tell ya the kind of cuts and colors they used to slap on me. Urp, gag!!

Cali-
I definately need a picture. If you think it is really that bad, just remember that makeover class we took and all the ladies with terrible haircuts and be grateful it doesn't look that bad(Patti's perm mullet:)

Oh I remember the days at BYU when you really did get a bad haircut. I can distinctly picture you looking like a boy in your red and white striped Friday's shirt. If you are going to be a boy, you might as well go all the way, buy yourself a power tool, only wear gym shorts when you are at home and leave dirty socks all over the place even if it is a day that no human should actually be wearing socks for.

Cali you pull off a short haircut better than anyone I know. Unlike everyone else, I HAVE seen the haircut and I'd say you definetly still fall in the hot mama category.
